The High Court of Justice issued an interim injunction on Tuesday, suspending the shipment of 90 long-tailed macaque monkeys from a breeding farm in Israel to a US laboratory.

The decision came following a petition against the exports by animal rights group Let The Animals Live (Ten Le Hayot Lihiyot) and is the latest stage in a long legal battle over the monkeys.

Let The Animals Live petitioned the High Court in the wake of a Central District Court ruling a week ago, which allowed the Mazor Farm monkey breeding farm near Petah Tikva to export 90 macaques to the US for experimentation. Mazor Farm petitioned the district court after the Nature and Parks Authority delayed its export permit for the monkeys.
